BWW TV: Broadway Beat at HIGH Opening NIght
Kathleen Turner, two-time Golden Globe® winner, Academy Award® & Tony Award® nominee stars as "Sister Jamison Connelly" in HIGH, a new play by Matthew Lombardo and directed by Rob Ruggiero. HIGH officially opened on April 19, 2011. Broadway Beat was on hand and brings you the opening night interviews below.
HIGH also features Stephen Kunken (Enron) as "Father Michael Delpapp" and Evan Jonigkeit as "Cody Randall". It was announced today that the production will take its final bow on April 24 after 8 performances.
HIGH explores the universal themes of truth, forgiveness, redemption and human fallibility. When Sister Jamison Connelly (Turner) agrees to sponsor a 19 year-old drug user in an effort to help him combat his addiction, her own faith is ultimately tested. Struggling between the knowledge she possesses as a rehabilitation counselor and a woman of religious conviction, she begins to question her belief in miracles and whether people can find the courage to change.
